United Kingdom 'very close' to European Union divorce bill agreement

The Democratic Unionist party, which holds the balance of power in the House of Commons, said it would not tolerate anything that decoupled Northern Ireland from the UK. There is undoubtedly an ever-increasing usage of nasty, jingoistic language by certain sections of the Brexit brigade, built on the shaky mythology of past imperial glory and imagined superiority.

Irish agriculture minister Michael Creed said the British Government need to put forward a "political solution" to ensure there was no return to the "hard border" of the past when Britain leaves the EU single market and the customs union.

It comes amid growing concerns in Europe that the impasse over the Border question is unresolved because of the uncompromising position of the DUP, which is propping up the Tory government. Ireland's EU Commissioner Phil Hogan predicted another breakthrough may be imminent, which would allow long deadlocked talks to move on to the future relationship between the two trading partners.

Channel 4 has posted a video on their Twitter page to see how British people were reacting to the Northern Ireland border issue.

Leading Brexiteer ministers are believed to have insisted an increased cash offer must come with a guarantee on a trade deal in the second phase of Brexit talks.

So the form of words will have to be robust enough to reassure Ireland that it is not taking a leap in the dark, but non-specific enough to allow Mrs May to reassure not just the DUP, but also hardline Conservative MPs, that the union between Britain and Northern Ireland was not being undermined.

The EU will not move on to discuss subjects like trade until there has been "sufficient progress" made on the issues of Ireland, Britain's Brexit bill, and the rights of EU citizens living in the UK. "If there is no border we might as well do away with the internal market".

In Ireland, as well as keeping the border open, the GFA would be reanimated by a new economic agenda and a possible threat to peace on the border would be lifted.

"We are not about convergence here, we are about co-operation".

A UK Government source added: 'In return for making progress on the withdrawal agreement the European Union will move on transition by the end of January with a fair wind, ' they said. Whilst agreeing with British ministers and EU negotiators that it is inconceivable for there to be a return to a hard border with the north, Dublin argues that the best way for the United Kingdom to achieve this would be by permanently remaining in a customs union with the EU and seeking single market membership like Norway through the European Economic Area. If that representation of the border were correct, it would mean Longford would be in Northern Ireland.
